GRDS 631*

GRDS630/631/632   2 credits/2 credits/2 credits

This course defines “social responsibility” as a nuanced and contextual idea, one whose meaning is constantly evolving and whose manifestations shift between cultures and generations. Specific project topics and themes rotate by semester. All projects involve an intensive research component that includes both informational and formal/visual research (collecting and making).

* Students must choose two of these courses during their second year (GRDS 621, GRDS 631, GRDS 641)
